Orchestre des Carabiniers du Prince to launch new album at sold out charity concert

On 7th March, 70 musicians from the Orchestre des Carabiniers du Prince will take to the stage of the Grimaldi Forum for a very special one-off concert that will mark the release of a brand-new double album and raise funds for the important work being done by the Princess Charlene Foundation. 

Led by French TV personality Stéphane Bern, a man renowned for his specialist coverage of European nobility and royalty, the evening will be a celebration of the enduring talents of the Orchestre des Carabiniers du Prince, a group that was created back in 1966 under the auspices of Monaco’s music-loving Prince Rainier III. 

Made up of mostly brass and woodwind instruments, with trumpets, saxophones and trombones at its heart, the ensemble has established itself as a source of an “eclectic and rich repertoire combining tradition and modernity” that has delighted audiences for nearly six decades.  

The esteemed band typically plays at official ceremonies, sporting events and public occasions in Monaco, but also travels the world for unique performances, such as the incredible event in New York City’s Times Square last June.

A double album of works by the Orchestre des Carabiniers du Prince will be launched at the upcoming gala evening, allowing guests and fans of the orchestra to take a piece of this cultural heritage home with them to enjoy at leisure.  

Tickets to the events had, per Prince Albert II’s wishes, been offered free of charge in lieu of donations made on the night to the Princess Charlene Foundation. A victim of their own success, all seats have now been taken.
